We’d like to know a little bit about you for our files, however we don’t like regurgitating press releases or asking the easy questions. No-one gets out of the Tone Deaf Interrogation lightly, so just hold still, grit your teeth, clench your buttocks and be still while we put on the rubber gloves, apply the thumbscrews, and pull out our thermometer while you open up and say ahhhhhhhhhhh… Truthful answers only or we drink your rider while you’re on stage.
Everyone joins or forms a band to get laid. If your band represents your sex life are you Casanova or spending plenty of time doing the five-knuckle shuffle?
Five knuckle wha?
We don’t want to know about the painfully hip bands your press release says you’re influenced by. Take us back to your bedroom when you were 14. What band posters did you have on the wall?
Wu-Tang, Pantera. Metalica.
What’s been your worst gig and why are you glad there’s no footage of it on Youtube … yet?
Lets paint the scene of one of our first shows! Picture a room of under age kids with cool hair cuts, band shirts, cross gender dressing for edginess, texting their parents, telling them that their “gathering” is going longer than expected. There were 4 bands that played; one over aged band playing prolonged prog rock, one shoe gaze duo that set up a Roland Juno and didn’t use it, and a band with a front man/kid (17yr old) that gets off from looking into girls eyes and frowning. Then us (then a duo) played some keyboards and pre recorded beats, dezzing out on 9-minute tracks in this art deco little room. We begun to play and were left with possibly 4 people standing there, two of which were the organisers of the night as it was now after midnight and the kids were on a curfew!
Tomorrow’s payday, so we’ve only got $20 to get you drunk. Where do we go and what do we buy with it
Dean Nobles top shelf liquor cabinet.
We’ve been looking in the $2 bin at Dixons Recycled and also bidding on eBay – what releases are we looking for they’re that your band has put out?
The one with Paul Mccartney holding a Ram by the horns, that’s us, it was a bollocks record so we didn’t put LC on it.
Suppose we put a gun to your head and force you to kiss a member of another Australian band. Who, which band and why?
Milk teddy’s front man Tom due to his dance moves and hairy chest.
